Emergence/Change … I come for you!

The Why About This

Emergence/Change

 If you believe tomorrow comes

Then, this be a perfect time,

For me to open up your heart

And claim what must be mine.

*

But I fear I’m now not certain

I don’t know where to be,

There is too much, there is so much

And there is only me.

*

You are but one of many

Still l know just what to do,

My certainty it overflows

For every one of you.

*

If one believes in miracles

I can perform my deed,

Spread out my will and enter in

You’ll listen – you will heed.

*

If only you were wiser

I could do what I must dare,

The way would go more swiftly

And I would take you there.

*

If all the If’s were certainties

And all your dreams came true,

The rest would come so easily

To bring this time to you.

Throwback Thursday: Women – Stand your ground! You can do it!

The Why About This

Last fall I published a post about it being your life and you should own it. Well I’m using the video clip I used from that post and a few of the words I said last year, so please read. It’s your life!

Stand your ground. Your life belongs to you. You are the one that breathes in and out of your body every day. You are the one who should be choosing what you plan to do with it, or are doing with it. The struggle may be difficult, but it’s worth it.

In the following video clip from the movie “Aliens” the heroine “Ripley” definitely encounters more things than we can ever imagine having to cope with in our lives by having to fight aliens on another planet.

But there is a point to be made here. When something needs to be done. She does it…

Passionate whispers … I cannot ignore!

The Why About This

Passionate Longings

They call to me …

so enticing

the exotic, unknown flavors

I cannot Ignore.

I must explore.

*

The lure is overwhelming

every sense filled with a provocative longing.

I must respond  to my passion

which calls to me.

*

I find I am powerless to resist …

My longing

for the written word!

I MUST READ A BOOK. I MUST!

I Love Books! I Love Books!

Thank you for the visit, have a relaxing weekend ~ Read a book!

The Written Word!

The Why About This

words

~

I – the written word

To many I am transient,

evanescent vapor.

In the moment, well thought of,

but just as quickly put aside.

my creative purpose, too frequently, surpassed,

seemingly for a better one.

And I in the midst of presentation

of poignant knowledge,

for your acquisition and enlightenment,

am left behind.

My sole passion to create your passion,

shaded subtleties and secrets

I would share for those who dare to read and learn.

Not just partake as in a feast,

feeding temporary hunger and then moving on.

Do I illuminate most vividly or is your viewing superficial?

My value and meaning dependent entirely on you.

And I – the written word – await the outcome!

Thank you, have a great day!

Various Stages of Writer’s Block

Shannon A Thompson

Announcements: 

The latest review of Take Me Tomorrow is in!Trials of a wanna-be-publisher writer states, “Take Me Tomorrow asks a lot of questions around thorny issues in today’s society without becoming preachy in its message…As I have come to expect from Shannon, this book is well-crafted, engaging and very well-written (pretty much a given for this author). While the genre may be classed as ‘Young Adult’, don’t let that fool you; Take Me Tomorrow is an intelligent and thought-provoking piece of writing and one I highly recommend you check out.” And I highly recommend you read her entire review by clicking here

Various Stages of Writer’s Block

Oh, the dreaded writer’s block. The horror of the static pen. The silence of untapped keyboards. The banging of your forehead against the desk.

We’ve all been there – some of us more than others – and that’s why…

For Writers: Exercise your body, exercise your brain

Shannon A Thompson

For Writers: Exercise your body, exercise your brain

Exercise. The dreaded e-word. I get it. People are busy. Between working and managing a healthy diet, finding the time to go for a run is difficult, but – ::sigh:: – it is important for many reasons. Taking care of yourself is vital to maintaining a healthy brain…and (spoiler alert) that healthy brain can be the make-it-or-break-it point for a writer on the verge of insanity. (I figured this out after I broke my sanity and had a sob fest in a public gym. Cute, I know.) You can only sit in your plush rolling chair and stare at your computer screen for so long, and getting up and out might help you surpass that writer’s block you’ve been battling for three weeks straight. So here are three, helpful tips I wish I had that I think pertain to many people (but…
